Don't have pic but if it happens again I will. I followed the directions to the letter and its keyed correctly as the key works great! I'll try to push it in further and turn it to ensure it's seated properly.

Does anyone know if this same install technique works on the lock cylinder for the glove box? Ours was missing and we ordered a new one. It "appears" to be the same setup. Just not 100% sure.

I think it does. I believe it uses the same cut positions as well.

make sure you have a spring under the brass keeper as well.

someone reported having a bad cap in the last couple of months, I would make sure there is a groove inside the cap that will capture the brass keeper.

I have the tumblers all correct and the lock works. When I insert the brass piece it doesn't. The brass piece does not click into place. Then when I put the key in the lock will not work. It seems that the brass is preventing the key from going all the way down. Any ideas?

Nevermind.
I just found out that it helps if you put the brass piece in the CORRECT direction.

Thanks, man... had it done in ten minutes, with most of the time spent cutting open the G.D. bags

I bought mine from Maureen at Rogers Chevrolet, arrived quickly. Thank you Maureen.
I got mine all ready to go, it took about 25 minutes, the hardest part was the brass keeper, I had to use some force to push it in, other than that the next step is to install the clip onto the fuel door.

Rockauto.com still lists the 22790846 but their price now shows $57.79 Good golly. Must be the newer number. Wonder what the difference is.
